Probably ignored or not even noticed by countless passengers at London Bridge station over the years the Victorian offices of the South Eastern Railway 64-84 Tooley Street, despite being in a Conservation Area, are soon to be demolished as part of the Thameslink Project and Re-development of London Bridge Station to create a spacious new entrance to the station and its new sub-platform concourse.

(above) Tooley Street offices are the building to the right of platform 1, with the faded green windows.

(below) The former South Eastern Railway offices from street level in Tooley Street. Opinion varies as to whether this is an attractive building but it is certainly a good representative of a functional industrial building of the Victorian Era, many of which have disappeared from this area of London.

(below) Decorative SER stonework at a corner of the building, below the parapet. The Webmaster is not sure if architecturally this counts as a Corbel as it cannot be bearing weight. Actually the Webmaster is far more taken with the decorative brick/or tile facings.
